Has anyone on the boards left the hobby of collecting, but stuck around for the community or do they go hand in hand? Over the past few months my collection has been weighing me down. I keep it at work and I had to move desks recently and it took a long time boxing everything up and then moving it to my new location. Setting everything up again afterwards has been a long and arduous task, and has taken a toll on my enthusiasm for collecting anything more. I actually went through what I had and sold a large portion of my collection, and many figures I had never considered selling before have found new homes. After they were all out of my house I almost felt relieved they were gone and that a small weight had been lifted. I can afford the hobby, and really love having them around, but sometimes I wonder why I do it at all. Once you get down to it they are just molded plastic and can no way give me the same satisfaction as traveling or having a new experience. If I were to sell the remainder of my collection I could fund a diving trip, or plane tickets to go to some distant part of the world. Which would you rather have? I've noticed many people in the B/S/T thread are dumping their entire collections (at least more than usual) and I don't think it's a coincidence. I'd love it if you guys would weigh in on your experiences with this. I'm definitely feeling conflicted.
